School chapel. 1927 by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott. Bargate rubblestone brought to course with ashlar dressings; plain tile roof. ll-bay nave and chancel in one with eastern apse. In modified Gothic style with Arts and Crafts detail. Tall building, the apparent height increased by having 5 very narrow gabled window bays to each side holding tall single lancets and alternating with wide bays, blank except for low square-headed windows at ground level, below offset, and balustraded balconies near the top leading to lights in the splayed flanks of the window-bay gables. Four octagonal corner turrets. One-storey porch wings at each corner have good carved detail to doorways. In eastern apse, grouped lancets below a large rose window. At west end, three tall lancets in a large round-arched recess with door below. High-pitched roof with rounded hip over apse. Interior: large aisleless open space, the walls smooth-rendered and with ashlar dressings. Oak wainscoting at lower level with pointed-arched panels and arcaded canopy. Elaborate carved oak organ case in centre at either side. Raised apse with carved stone reredos pierced for light from stained glass window. Raised west end bay with side screens, furnished as memorial chapel for the two world wars. Three doorways at west end, carved and moulded. Roof barrel-vaulted having flat ribs with hollow chamfers and roll-moulded arrises. A rich building of inspired design and meticulous craftsmanship both inside and out.
